Confronting Globalization Summary


Confronting Globalization: Economic Integration and Popular Resistance in Mexico by Timothy Wise

The HIV epidemic presents a challenge to relief agencies working with displaced populations, both in the midst of emergencies and afterwards. In crisis situations people are vulnerable to the rapid spread of many infections, and normal patterns of sexual behavior are often disrupted, leading to increased transmission of sexually transmitted infections, including HIV. Based on work done by the International Rescue Committee (IRC), this book shows how relief agencies, which will usually be present both during the crisis and post-emergency phases, can work with refugees and local people to minimize further spread of HIV and provide care and support to those affected. The book provides training exercises, activities for engaging the refugee population in HIV prevention work, references for HIV resources; and clearly explains how to integrate HIV prevention, care and support with other relief activities.
